  • Paperback
  • £9.99

In the stress and busyness of modern living, a young, vibrant teacher of the Drukpa branch of
Buddhism shows us a new way of thinking, a new way of life.

The restless mind is frightened of silence, easily bored, and busy, busy, busy.
The restful mind is creative and alert, relaxed and confident.

The step from one to the other is all in the way we think.

His Eminence Gyalwa Dokhampa has a real understanding of the pressures of modern life and how our crowded minds have left us too little space to stretch and grow.

He shows us new ways to calm body and mind, become more aware, better able to deal with problems and appreciate the moment.

It is with our mind that we create our world. Here's how to open it up and let the world in.

Living A Life You Love

Joyce Meyer
Authors:
Joyce Meyer

Like many people, you may find it easy to express love for your family, your spouse, your church, the Lord-or for more temporal things like a good cup of tea, your home, or a nice dinner at your favorite restaurant. But you may struggle to truly say "I love my life!" Routines and responsibilities can become a grind, making you dread today, rather than look forward to it. Privileges can become burdens that rob you of the joy and fulfillment you're meant to have as a child of God. But you can be hopeful, learn to rise above your challenges, and become filled with wonder at what God can do in your life. Written by #1 New York Times bestselling author Joyce Meyer, who went from being in pain and miserable to peaceful and satisfied through Christ, this book is the key to shifting your perspective so that you may also relish every moment and every part of life. Joyce explains how to love life fully, in spite of your obstacles, so you can experience the joy and fulfillment God has for you! Chapters include: God Has an Amazing Plan for You, Refuse to Let Fear Determine Your Destiny, See Each Day as an Opportunity, and Be the You God Created You to Be! The key to loving your life is found in God's love for you. When you make Him the focus of all you do it will transform your attitude, so that you can really enjoy each day. Learn how God can help you maintain a joyful attitude, making love and kindness top priorities, and what you give away will come back to you immeasurably. As Joyce explains, God has already blessed you with what it takes to start LIVING A LIFE YOU LOVE. And this book will show you how.

What We Talk about when We Talk about Faith

Peter Stanford
Authors:
Peter Stanford

Peter Stanford has been interviewing people of faith during his thirty-five years as a journalist at national papers including the Daily Telegraph, the Independent and The Guardian, as well as for the church press. What fascinates him in such conversations is how creating a space to talk unguardedly about faith unlocks so much more: what shaped and continue to shape the public and private lives of high-profile names; how those values connect with the work they are best known for; and why they believe the search for faith makes them who they are. This collection of the best of his interviews - some with household names, others with those not so immediately familiar, but all people of achievement with a resonant story to tell - aims to lift the lid on a topic that has become increasingly marginalised in the public square of our increasingly secular and sceptical society, where to 'do God' can feel like breaking a taboo. Put together, the 44 subjects collectively demonstrate that, rather than being all about doctrine and dogma, there are as many ways of exploring faith as there are individuals currently doing it. These intriguing interviews with activists, writers and artists, politicians, rebels and those who have taken vows will appeal to committed believers, those on the fringes of faith, and those who look in from the outside with curiosity. Includes interviews with Sara Maitland | Sister Wendy Beckett | Delia Smith | The Revd Richard Coles | Dermot O'Leary | Cherie Blair | Archbishop Desmond Tutu | Bronwen Astor | Amos Oz | Nick Cave

10% Happier

Dan Harris
Authors:
Dan Harris

10% HAPPIER is a spiritual book written for - and by - someone who would otherwise never read a spiritual book. It is both a deadly serious and seriously funny look at mindfulness and meditation as the next big public health revolution.Dan Harris always believed the restless, relentless, impossible-to-satisfy voice in his head was one of his greatest assets. How else can you climb the ladder in an ultra-competitive field like TV news except through nonstop hand-wringing and hyper vigilance? For a while, his strategy worked. Harris anchored national broadcasts and he covered wars. Then he hit the brakes, and had a full-blown panic attack live on the air. What happened next was completely unforeseen. Through a bizarre series of events - involving a disgraced evangelical pastor, a mysterious self-help guru and a fateful gift from his wife - Harris stumbled upon something that helped him tame the voice in his head: meditation. At first, he was deeply suspicious. He had long associated meditation with bearded swamis and unwashed hippies. But when confronted with mounting scientific evidence that just a few minutes a day can literally rewire the brain for focus,happiness, and reduced reactivity, Harris took a deep dive. He spent years mingling with scientists,executives and marines on the front lines of a quiet revolution that has the potential to reshape society. He became a daily meditator, and even found himself on a ten-day, silent meditation retreat, which was simultaneously the best and worst experience he'd ever had.Harris's life was not transformed into a parade of rainbows and unicorns, but he did gain a passion for daily meditation. While the book itself is a narrative account of Dan's conversion amid the harried and decidedly non-Zen world of the newsroom, it concludes with a section for the novice on how to get started.
